  • I am so Excited I'm pregnant and ready for my first!!

    I am so excited about having a baby. I once was pregnant before this and had a miscarriage. I was in pain and had to go through the miscarriage naturally.

  • Waiting Welton's

    It has been a long 3 weeks... We got married on September 4th,2010. It was a day I'll never forget, thanks to (hurricane) Earl. But in spite of that, it turned out to be a beautiful afternoon, and glorious celebration of LOVE. A few days later (Wednesday, September 8th) we had our 20 week ultrasound.

  • Naming Nuances

    This is my hubby's first baby, my third. He is thrilled, obviously, to finally have his own. If it's a boy, it will be named after him, Francisco Ramiro Rodriguez III... the baby being the fourth. However, if it's a girl (my first girl), he wants to name it something I abhor: Adrestia Patience Rodriguez. Ugh!

    Today is Sunday, on Wednesday I thought I had a doctor's appointment. It turned out that it was supposed to have been on Tuesday; and I missed it!

  • Waiting Welton's

    Today we went to the hospital to have a second ultra-sound and some blood work done. My fiancée made plans to go into work late, again, so that he could be present for the fascinating "picture show". There was lots of questions and paperwork, and Kris really wasn't thrilled with sitting through all of that, but as soon as they put the jelly on my belly he was in a trance. He stared at the monitor, waiting for the "show" to start. When the ultra-sound machine touched my belly, there was a quick arm movement from baby.

    Today, we went for our "early ultrasound" as we did not have a precise due date. As we waited to see the technician that would give us our first glimpse of our developing bundle of joy, I could feel the pressure in my bladder building by the minute. Once in the ultrasound room, the technician explained what was about to happen. She explained that she would have to apply lots of pressure to get a good view of the fetus. I figured, "short term pain, for long term gain (i.e. have a defined due date). At first she had difficulty finding the baby, then she spotted the amniotic sac.

  • Parenting Kids & Dogs

    After having already had three children and a houseful of dogs and cats I pretty much thought I was prepared for our fourth baby, Kelsyann. I'm an experienced Mom right?!? This should be easy.

    Well boy was I wrong! From the beginning Kelsyann has been a needy baby. Nothing that worked with the others seemed to work for her. This has been interesting, frustrating and challenging at best!

    Information to come soon!

  • PUSH: Riding the Blue Line

    On top of the rumpled sheet were two long white things, which I mistook for thermometers. She had been sick lately, and I figured she had been taking her temperature. Twice, for some reason. When I blinked, the thermometers turned into something more interesting: home pregnancy tests.

  • PUSH: Home Economics

    So where does this leave us? With a lot of pressure on me, that's where. No one ever made a killing as a journalist, and I'm certainly no exception. My salary is not enough to support two people, much less three. So, what to do? Take three months off, that's what.

  • PUSH: Sweeping the Faith

    By the time the groundskeepers were removing the rain tarp from the field, we were no longer speaking to each other. I guess these kinds of complex theological problems can't be solved in an afternoon. The important thing was that we were able to openly talk about our differences.

  • Today is overwhelming

    Ah, how I missed the roller coaster ride of hormones that comes with pregnancy. Yesterday I couldn't have been more excited, yet today I'm a ball of stress on the verge of tears. Where are we going to get the extra money for another mouth to feed? How am I going to keep working at the veterinary hospital where chemo and x-rays are a part of my daily routine? How will I deal with a 15 month old and a newborn at the same time?

  • Porffor Plus One

    Well here I am, 37, mum to a dear daughter who has just turned 10 - literally a few days after we conceived. :) We are foster carers and have been for 5 years now, and adopted a lovely little girl who is now 4 and a half. We are fortunate to have such wonderful daughters and have a wonderful relationship with them both.
